S., Sept. 2.—Mr. Bod well opened his address before the Ber ing" sea commission this morning. He took up the question of the effect of domicile on nationality, and-asked the commission to consider that the claims were not Individual, but national. Mr. Bodwell termed as absurd the claims of the United States brief that the»noney award by the commission would be paid to the queen of England as trustee. He claimed that the queen received such money as a prerogative, to be paid over to the individuals who suffered. Mr. Bodwell contended that the question of compensation to Individuals depended on damage done by seizure, and the as suming of the rights of England by the United States must also be taken into consideration. He argued that unless England can show International wrong she would not have any case, however great the damage Any person domi ciled ln British territory and owing Eng land temporary allegiance had a right to the protection of the British crown. Mr Dickinson remarked that the Brit ish government, in all cases, did not neglect to press claims in, regard to indi viduals. Bodwell, answering, stated that the commission had been established by written agreement and that thecommis slon would have to consult that docu ment to ascertain itsposition. The ques tions were of international law, and the speaker contended that as such the claims would have to be decided. He claimed as a second step that the domi cile of an individual decided his na tionality. A BROKEN RAIL Steers a Train Through a Station Building SYRACUSE, N.

AN INDIO STORM Four Feet of Water Running Through the Streets INDIO, Sept. 2.—One of the heaviest storms ever experienced at this place began about midnight last night, with heavy flashes of lightning without thun der, until near 3 in the morning, when rain began falling in torrents, accom panied by thunder and lightning. Two inches of rain fell before daybreak. The country was covered with water, but it ran off in a short time. About noon the water from a cloudburst in the San Ja cinto mountains reached the town, Hooding the valley with a stream of water four feet deep and twenty feet wide, which is now running between the railroad depot and the postofflce. Not much damage has been done so far as heard from. The Southern Pacific rail road was washed out in places, but trains were delayed but a short time. No Offers Made WASHINGTON, Sept. 2.—Attorney- General McKenna's attention was called tonight to a statement published in Boston in connection with the meeting of the government directorsof the Union Pacific that there was a hitch ln the reorganization plans, due in part to the fact that the department of justice wanted the Union Pacific reorganizers to pay about $3,000,000 more to the gov ernment. McKenna stated that no such proposition had been made, nor had the government made any proposition. The Boston publication also referred to a possible government loan of a large amount or an issue of paper money, if the federal authorities undertook to operate the Union Pacific. As to this subject, McKenna said he had no infor mation, and it appears to be purely con jectural, based on the remote conting ency that the government will operate this ar.d other railroads now In default on subsidy.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 3, 1897 TRAVELED FAR And Would Like to Travel Farther MANY OBJECTIONS OFFERED BY THE POLICE OP SEVEBAL PLACES Sir Harry Cooper Accused of Crimes Committed in Cities All Over the World Associated Press Special Wire. TORONTO, Ont., Sept. 2—The Tor onto police would like to lay their hands on Sir Harry Cooper, now under arrest in San Francisco. The alleged swindler appeared in Mulaur township last Feb ruary as the escort of Miss Nellie At kinson, who was returning to recuper ate after a long illness in Toronto. He was known to her and at William Hall's boarding house as Dr. Henry Westwood Cooper, where he had lived With hts Wife and her younger brother since their ar rival from Australia last December. Cooper said he had practiced medicine in Australia for about a year and a half, and held papers which purported to be dlplomas.from one of the London. England, medical colleges. Ills Wife went to the village of Stanton in April and is there at present. She says she was Miss Bertha Young of Brisbane. Australia, where Cooper married her, a couple of years ago. Cooper followed his wife to Stanton and boarded at the home of Thomas Campaign, where he became a great favorite. He paid spe cial court to Miss Campaign, 18 years old, whom he persuaded to marry him. saying that the woman who passed as Mrs. Cooper was not married to him. He told the girl's? parents that she was suffering from a throat disease ar.d of fered to take her to Toronto for treat ment. This was assented to. On the 17th of May last, in company with a member of the Campaign family, Coop er went to Sherbourne and procured a marriage license and borrowed a sum of money from a friend of the family. Then he took the girl to Toronto, satisfying her with the marriage license and her parents with his reputation as a throat specialist. They remained together in Toronto for a time and then disap peared and have not been heard of here since. CHICAGO KNOWS HIM CHICAGO, Sept. 2—Henry W. Coop er, who travels under the name of Sir Harry Westwood Cooper and who was arrested in San Francisco for swindling, lived in Chicago for a time under the name of Milward and represented him self as an English physician. To a num ber of persons he explained that he was a member of the English nobility and claimed that he was in receipt of a reg ular Income from some of the estates of his family. He lived expensively, spent money freely and for a time was entertained by some of the best families in the city. The full extent of his swindling is not definitely known by the Pinkerton de tectives, but he is said to have been one of the most clever in his unlawful pro fession. The Bankers' Protective Asso ciation is said to want him for alleged fraudulent work In the East and his ar rest in San Francisco is the outcome of a long period of watching and shadow ing on the part of the Plnkertons throughout the country. In addition to his swindling operations Cooper Is also suspected of being a bigamist, a young woman ln Detroit claiming to have mar ried him shortly before his departure for San Francisco. If Cooper is convict ed on the charge on which he has been arrested ln San Francisco it isquite pos sible he will be brought to Chicago at the expiration of his sentence. IN HARD LUCK SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 2.—Harry Cooper, whoahas been held by the police on suspicion of being connected wit.i eastern frauds, was discharged and re- irrested today for obtaining money under false pretenses. He secured a loan of $30 from John T. Gallagher, pro prietor of the Langham hotel, and gave as security a draft on the Chicago Mer chants' Loan and Trust association for $85,000. The Wife of the Secretary of State Mrs. John Sherman, wife of the secre tary of state, is one of the most notice ably handsome women one sees driving on the country roads these summer af ternoons in a beautifully turned out vic toria, with the handsomest of horses and an English groom and coachman as per fectly set up and liveried as anyone sees in Hyde park during a London season. There is no air of ostentation, nothing !oud or money-proclaiming about this gentle grande-dame, either in herself or her equipage; the liveries, her turnout, her dress, all bespeak the elegance that belongs to the true gentlewoman. The Shermans, by the way, have-, I believe, about as good a right to call themselves aristocrats as any Americans of today, for they have for many generations heen people of means and culture. Mrs. Sher man's hair is almost white, and is waved and parted above the gentlest, most wo manly brow, while her bright blue eyes have, that bright young joy in them that good and happy women always keep there. Her complexion Is wonderfully fresh and fair. She has learned, in truth, the art of growing old gracefully.—Wash ington letter to the Atlanta Constitu tion. Mail Carriers' Rates CHICAGO, Sept. 2.—The Burlington, Atchison, Northwestern and other inter- ested lines have met the rate of the Rock Island for the convention of letter car riers at San Francisco.

THE HEATHEN (With apologies to Rudyard Kipling.) The heathen in his folly eats anything that's good, He doesn't try to choose the food that science says he should; Ho dies, gray-haired and weary, at fore score years and ten, And what most sorely vexes him Is that he can't eat then. Keep away from pickles, keep away from spice, Keep away from cabbage, cornfield peas and rice. Never eat a thing that's sweet, and al ways eat It cold. And thus you'll save your intellect from growing stale and old. The heathen has three meals a day and sometimes one at night, He thinks his early breakfast to be his In born right; He rises in the morning and hears his hun ger call- He. never heard that science proves it Isn't there at all. Keep away from breakfast, keep sway from tea, Keep away from lunches, wherever they may be. Never let your midday meal be either large or rich, And every morsel you may take, be careful which Is which. The heathen drinks the water that bubbles from the spring, He thinks that if it slakes his thirst It is the very thing; He'll kiss his sweetheart on the Hps In stead of on the chin, And not suspect that he commits a scien tific sin. Keep away from pollywogs, angle worms and flies. Keep away from insects of every sort and size. Never breathe a microbe ln unless you cough him out, For he may be the chicken-pox, the measles and the gout. The heathen fills his system with deadly drugs and weeds. He works until he's tired and rests more than he needs; He sets his brain in action when It should be ln repose, And then he adds dyspepsia to his many other woes. Keep away from appetite, keep away from thirst— These of all the foes on earth to science are the worst. Keep away from exercise, keep away from thought. And you will live until you die, if you're not sooner caught. -Norfolk (Va.) Landmark.

I^' 8 SILVER COIN Is Sent to Weyler for Use in Cuba INSIGNIFICANT SUCCESSES RESULT FROM SORTIES BY THE SPANISH TROOPS Miss Cisneros Is Kept Comfortable in Prison, and Will Probably Be Pardoned Soon Associated Press Special Wire. HAVANA, Sept. 2.—The last two steamers which sailed for Spain carried 1500 sick and disabled soldiers. Captain-General Weyler received from Spain today $2,000,000 in silver to be used in defraying- the expenses of the war In Cuba. It Is officially announced that a force lOf 200 Spanish infantry, commanded by Captain Cesario Ponton, surprised an insurgent force encamped on the heights of Joro, province of Plnar del Rio, kill ing twenty-five of the enemy and wound ing several others. The Spaniards cap tured several prisoners, among them be ing Colonel Jose Placios, who was wounded. Another Spanish column, re connoiterlng on the hills of Rubi and Laguna, province of Pinar del Rio, killed twenty-four insurgents, the of ficial report says. Among the killed were three officers. Canarias' battalion, it is announced from headquarters, surprised an insur gent camp at Romagosa. The enemy left forty-one men killed, many wound ed and a quantity of arms and ammuni tion. The loss of the Spaniards Is al leged to be Insignificant. Captain-General Weyler, escorted by a detachment of 150 cavalry from Mad ruga, passed through San Antonio and San Nicolas yesterday and camped for the night at the sugar plantation of Amistead, near Guines, this province. THE CISNEROS CASE NEW YORK, Sept. 2—A dispatch to the Herald from Havana says: Except the Duke of Tetuan's order for the re movel of Evangellna Cossio Cisneros from the Recogdias to a convent, which the authorities will not admit, no action has yet been taken. According to pre cedent nothing will be done until Gen. Weyler returns from the field. The date of his return Is uncertain. In the meantime there is no danger that the girl will be harshly dealt with. It would appear that her release from prison is only a question of time. The evening before Gen. Weyler started for the front he wrote, with his own hand, a most friendly letter to Consul-Gen- eral Lee, in reply to the letter's appeal for the liberation of Evangellna. Gen. Weyler said in his letter that as the case was still sub-Judico he could now do nothing, but she would be brought to trial very shortly. The recent agitation in the American press, Gen. Weyler continued, made bis favorable action difficult, but he trust ed that when the time came he would see his way to accede to Gen. Lee's re quest. This means that Gen. Weyler is I disposed to pardon the girl. Evangellna does not wish to go to a convent. Her chief desire is to face her accusers in open court. She still re members that she has a sweetheart and that she is very anxious concerning her father's fate. She Is as comfortably sit uated now as is possible in a Spanish prison. She is well dressed, has her meals sent from a restaurant and is afforded privacy. There la a fortune ln chancery here to which she has a better claim than anybody else. It Is not publicly alleged that any official is trying to cheat her out of her Inheritance, but the matter will be investigated. WOODFORD'S MISSION MADRID, Sept. 2.—A1l the newepapers of this city publish strong protests against tlw mission of General Stewart L. Woodfortl, the new Unltedt States min ister to Spain, which Is causing wide spread irritation against the United States. Aristotle said of tragedy that It not merely excited but also purified the emotions of pity and terror. It has al ways seemed to me that it might be said of music, In a wider sense, that it puri fies the emotional part of our nature. It supplies a language for ineffable thoughts and feelings, and reacts upon them, calming, elevating them, lifting all that is selfish ln them to a higher plane, by bringing other souls into a subtle communion with our own. It has been well said, the "Musician converts by his alchemy the common stuff of pain and joy Into music." I need make no apology for drawing attention to this guiding and controlling power of music to those who are accustomed to consider education in its widest sense, as con cerned, that Is, not merely with the In tellectual faculties, but with the emo tional and moral side of man's nature also. True educators ought to be much occupied with this problem of evoking and controlling the emotions of their pupils, so as to arrive at a true balance of character. Among the Greeks the part played by music was so clearly recog nized that this study took a prominent place In education. It Is true that they included under the term music more than we do now, namely, poetry, histo ry, and in fact all that helps to render the character well balanced—London Echo. Mayor McKisson of Cleveland, while presiding at a board meeting recently, was surprised by an old gentleman, whb walked into the room, and laying a large bunch of tiger lilies on the mayor's desk, said: "These flowers are from Mrs. Crawford, who lives on Harkness ave nue. She is 76 year old and has lived ln Cleveland for half a century. In the opinion of this lady your honor Is the best mayor this city ever had.
